This game won’t be close. Louisville is one of the best defensive teams in the country and to be favored by this much, with the total so low means we should have the Cardinals being effective and dominating.
The Gamecocks are in the tournament for the first time in school history. They won 20 games this season to tie a school record and they enter the tournament having won four consecutive games. They have four guys averaging double digits per game but it’s going to take a really strong effort on offense to be able to hang around with a Louisville team that beats up its opponents.
The Cardinals have experience and can rebound well, unless they are sleep-walking in this one, it shouldn’t be a problem.
